We look for people with excellent problem-solving and people skills, leadership potential, entrepreneurship, a healthy curiosity, and the courage to take initiative. The calibre of the individuals who work at McKinsey is reflected in everything we are and everything we do.
While drive and talent are essential prerequisites to be successful here, a business degree is not. In fact our consultants have many different types of university degrees—including engineering, physics, humanities, medicine, and law. We believe the varied experiences of our office members constitute one of our greatest strengths.
